Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Job 21:32

_ _ Yet — rather, “and.”

_ _ brought — with solemn pomp (Psalms 45:15).

_ _ grave — literally, “graves”; that is, the place where the graves are.

_ _ remain in — rather, watch on the tomb, or sepulchral mound. Even after death he seems still to live and watch (that is, have his “remembrance” preserved) by means of the monument over the grave. In opposition to Bildad (Job 18:17).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Job 21:27-34.
